FAQs What is a COLOR RUN?


A Color Run is a fun run where participants run on a track as they are showered with color powder, making a fun, colorful event. What is the color powder made of? PurColour Celebration Powder is environmentally friendly and cornstarch based. No ecological hazards are associated with this product. It can be easily washed or blown from event areas.


What should students wear? Color Powder can stain clothes and the skin. Typical machine washing, with stain remover, removes the stains. Students may wear their PE clothes (It’s a Friday so they will bring them home to wash) or bring other clothes to wear specifically for the run. Students will not be allowed to wear their run clothes throughout the day.


How can parents participate? Parent volunteers will be needed to help pass out the color and monitor runners. Please email:


What are we raising money for? We are raising money for two new color LED marquees. One will be placed on the side of the new gym, and one will be down at the corner of Bean Creek/SV Drive.


What about corporate matching? When making a donation on the FirstGiving site, it is possible to initiate a corporate match if your workplace participates.

The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and The Capitola Auto Mall Dealer Group generously support Santa Cruz County schools with the Drive for Schools Annual Car Giveaway!  


Last year's winner had the choice of a NEW Suburu Outback OR a NEW Toyota Prius OR $25,000.00 cash!   Over 100 other raffle prizes were given away as well - making these very attractive raffle tickets easily sold far and wide!   Over 79 county schools raised nearly $500,000.00.
